Another footnote post today. This one is inserted into a scene where a character is working on a crossword. Since the digression does nothing to develop the character or scene, I made it a footnote. Five Talents being a novel about Devils and “larger truths” of the universe (albeit in comedic fashion), I like these footnotes to carry a tone of larger revelation/epiphany to them. In this case, it’s regarding the Times‘ crossword puzzle, and our shared love of Oreo cookies.
